Authorities say a 56-year-old man being treated at the Delaware Psychiatric Center has a "significant" injury after an employee pushed him. The state Department of Health and Social Services said the man was being led into a quiet room on Thursday when the worker escorting him pushed him from behind.

The department did not release details of the man's injuries.

The employee has been reassigned to a job that doesn't involve patient care until the department's investigation of the incident is completed.
